Praise for Used and Rare

"Charming."--The New York Times

"Their enthusiasm is everywhere infectious...delightful...the pages are radiant with a pervasive love of literature."--The Washington Times

"The authors' descriptions are evocative, their storytelling compassionate-- and frequently hilarious. A sort of Year in Provence for book lovers."--Kirkus Reviews

"Most books about books are as stuffy and musty as a 400-year-old binding, but the Goldstones' prose is as sprightly and readable as the 'modern firsts' they began to add to their collections. I read it in one sitting."--Rocky Mountain News

"An entertaining introduction to the world of book collecting."--Publishers Weekly
